Hosta of the Day - Ringtail

Postby redcrx » Sep 18, 2015 6:00 am

Ringtail is a Green Fountain hybrid with jagged edged leaves and curly leaf tips.

I have Ringtail growing in a trough.

Here it is when it came in in 2013. You can see the leaf tips.

I LOVE this hosta. I used it for some initial attempts at hybridizing this year (lots of pollen, and flowers produced over a long time). We'll see what happens. Our is in a pot, which shows off the curly tips.

I'll try to remember to upload a pic later.

This is mine, new this spring. A bit leggy but filled in with the second flush of growth.

I'm surprised at how many pods are forming on Ringtail this year.
